Guys, I just purchased an two 04 Rincons. Very Happy with performance and comfort however just wondering how deep you can take the bikes into water without going overboard. I went approx 500mm deep on the weekend, however I bet you guys have been a lot deeper than that. Wondering how the front drums seal and things I should do before and after the crossing to prolong the life of the bike.
cheers from Australia!

You can easily get it up to the top of the tires, or even to the bottom of the fenders without a problem. The air intake is just under the gas tank cover, directly ahead of the seat, and slightly higher. So as long as that area remains above water, you're fine.

I can't convert from the metric system on how deep 500mm is. That is kind of like a roy'al with cheese. (inside joke from a movie, a prize to the first person who names the movie it's from).

500mm is just under 20". The movie was Pulp Fiction.
